Hagemeyer chose the user-friendly inventory software GAINS solution because of its ability to optimise costs and service levels, handle millions of items, and forecast slow-moving lines.Bruce Lodge Hagemeyer’s U.S. Director of Inventory Management said:
“We are looking to GAINS to help us maintain our already high service levels but with greater efficiency and less inventory. GAINS will also enable us to reduce our workload in planning, purchasing, and warehousing operations.”
Hagemeyer, already a leader in the distribution industry, recognised additional areas for improvement in optimising their supply chain, including inventory sharing and cross docking. They selected the GAINS solution to address these areas, and help take their supply chain to the next level.
